I'm not sure Ralph would want to relive this, but I believe I can give you accurate information.

1998, Wild West.

If I remember right, the Overall 2wd fight was just shaping up. Ralph, Carl Jardevall (G5) and Dave White (G2) where running within a 10-15 seconds of each other, and I do believe Ralph was barely leading.

The part the Video didn't show (it was ESPN2 in 1998) was that the corner Ralph went off was the slickest corner of that stage, definately a gotcha in slickness.
